Nice captures but as said something we don't really like seeing.

Thanks guys for the comments. I agree, not exactly the scenerio we like to see here in California, anywhere really. But thanks to the quick response of this CDF helo they were able to knock down this fire quickly. I only live a short distance from this man made lake where they were drawing the water for the fire. It was pretty cool seeing this excellent pilot swooping in to scoop water and the then racing out to drop it. The water drop shot was taken from about a mile out.

Cheers,
Steve
